Megan Thee Stallion is truly one of the itiest It Girls of our generation and we all have no choice but to collectively stan. I do not trust you if there are not at least three songs of hers that you can recite. Backwards.
Megan’s career has been wildly successful ever since her 2018 EP Tina Snow dropped, and it's truly only been up from there. Pretty sure if Meg earned $1 for every time someone did the “Savage” TikTok dance in 2020, she’d be a billionaire—but honestly, just give it time because her current net worth is im-pres-sive. Especially for those of us whose personal net worth is, like, one chicken nugget.
Between multiple hits, a load of major partnerships, merch sales and a buttload of consistent streams, Megan is a hot girl and a very, very rich girl. Let's dig into her incredibly deep bag, shall we?
Her music still makes the money—mostly thanks to streams
Naturally, most of Meg's direct deposits are a result of her well-loved music. In 2019, Megan's hit "Hot Girl Summer" became pretty much everybody's personal anthem and solidified her as a household name. Then in 2020, she had a helluva year. Not only did she bless us all during the quarantine lockdown with “Savage (Remix)” featuring Beyoncé and then star on Cardi B's “WAP,” which secured the coveted No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, her track “Body” also absolutely dominated, and Time named her one of its most influential people.
To date, Megan has 28.6 million monthly Spotify listeners. On top of that, “WAP” has garnered more than 1 billion streams, and “Savage” has tallied nearly 365 million streams. And yeah, obviously all those streams have lead to a lottttt of cash. Cardi and Megan announced that they were partnering with Twitter and Cash App to give away $1 million. So…if they had $1 million to spare, let’s go ahead and assume there was a lot more where that came from.
To all everyone supporting #WAP we see you!! we’re partnering with Twitter and Cash App to celebrate all the powerful women out there by giving away a total of $1 million dollars.
how can some $ help you or a woman you know right now?

She's back to performing live
Like most artists, Megan's touring schedule was drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown periods. But now that many restrictions have loosened, she is back on the stage. From performing at Coachella for the very first time in April 2022 to literally now being on a European tour, Megan is undoubtedly making so much money from being on stage, which is historically where artists made the bulk of their income.
She has a TON of major brand partnerships
Our hot girl coach is not only cashing music checks, y'all, but also those from top-tier brands. Sit back for this rather long list of receipts. Megan has deals with: Popeye's, Coach, Nike, Revlon, Calvin Klein, Cheetos—who she partnered with for a freaking Super! Bowl!! Commercial!!! naturally meaning more $$$$), and Fashion Nova. Yes multiple streams of income!
She's also stepping into TV and film
You! Cannot! Contain! Her! Back in December, Megan inked a pretty impressive deal with Netflix where she will both create and produce brand new content. The $$$$ of the deal aren't widely available, but we know Netflix is never hurting for cash, so it's safe to assume that Meg got a nice lil lump of coins. But it doesn't stop there because our girl will be on both sides of the camera. Deadline reported that Megan will also star in A24's first ever movie musical F*cking Identical Twins.
Before this, Megan also had her own Snapchat series called "Off the Leash," and if you want to see her and her famous friends—and their fur babies—literally get into pure shenanigans while hanging out on an exclusive ranch/farm/estate then I cannot recommend it enough.
Her record label allegedly screwed her over
Megan's net worth is hefty (more on that below), but she might have even more if it weren’t for her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment, which she sued in March 2020. Megan claims her contract allowed 1501 to “literally do nothing, while at the same time taking for themselves the vast majority of [her] income from all sources.”
Rolling Stone checked out Megan’s original 1501 contract (signed February 4, 2018), and apparently, she was given a signing bonus of just $10,000 (sounds like a lot, but it’s really not for this industry!) “as an advance toward future earnings,” and the royalties split was 60-40—with them taking the majority.
Rolling Stone also reported that under the terms of the contract, 1501 Entertainment got 30 percent of “almost all of Megan’s sources of income” and it had the exclusive rights to her name/likeness and it wanted 30 percent of her $$ for any other endeavors—like TV, film, etc. 1501 Entertainment CEO Carl Crawford accused Megan and her team of using a “strong-arm tactic” so that he would renegotiate her contract, telling Billboard, “You think Jay-Z would have gave her part of her masters on her first deal with Roc Nation? F*ck no. Then she’s getting $100,000 a show and she don’t want to pay up.”
The case is currently pending, so, well, let’s move on for now!
So, what’s her net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, that’d be $8 million—which is not only a lot of money, but it's also nearly triple of what it was just two years ago!!!! Truly loving all of this for Meg, but we know more commas and zeros will be added to that number super soon.
